When the United States pulled out of Iraq, it left behind many Iraqis who had helped U.S. forces. The same thing is happening in Afghanistan—and those who helped U.S. forces are now at peril of their lives. Special immigrant visas (SIVs) are available for such Iraqis and Afghans, but nearly impossible to get. In this issue of Inside Immigration, Dan Berger and others describe how some immigrants have overcome obstacle after obstacle to land safely in the United States.

In “Left Behind: Iraqis and Afghans Caught in a Sea of SIV Red Tape,” the authors cover:

  • The SIV Program on Paper: How It Should Work
  • Current Alternatives to the SIV Program
  • Challenges to Actually Getting an SIV
  • New Deadlines and Potential Reforms: Congress Gets Involved
